I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Auvers Cafe is a stylish space full of delicious food and drinks at the all new Sydney precinct of Darling Square. The minimalist decor and colourful French-inspired wall art complemented the warm welcome on a drizzly, grey Sydney day.

Named for and inspired by the French village Auvers-sur-Oise, where the artist Van Gogh lived, worked and died and has a sister Auvers cafe at Rhodes that is only open till 4pm. Auvers at Darling Square is fully licensed with alcohol available after 10am. The house cocktails pay homage to Van Gogh with reference to 'Sunflowers', 'Irises' and 'Starry Night'. Dietary requirements are catered for with some vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options on the menu.

On weekdays, brunch is available until 3pm (4pm weekends) and dinner service begins at 5pm. The menu has a decent diverse selection of innovative dishes. There is great care taken with the plating and service of the food and our dishes looked almost too pretty to eat. The staff are young, enthusiastic and passionate about their product.

The risotto was full of taste and texture and had an interesting variety of mushrooms. The tempura enoki contrasted to the creaminess of the risotto and the edamame and cherry tomatoes added pops of colour. The chicken roulade had much subtler flavour combinations and tasted even better than it looked, the yuzu and apple purée was amazing.

We didn't need dessert but I couldn't resist the signature dish of Auvers' pancakes. This vibrant dish is amazing and could easily serve four people, the matcha pancakes are light but large and the flavour is neither overly sweet or bitter.

Come to Auvers at Darling Square to experience a fusion of Australian, Asian and French fare in a newly refurbished part of Sydney.
